Australia defeats Switzerland 4-1

Casey Dellacqua has helped Australia trump Switzerland 4-1 in their Fed Cup World Group II tie.

After Jarmila Gajdosova clinched the winning rubber with a 6-3 3-6 8-6 win over No.219 Amra Sadikovic to give Australia an unassailable lead, Dellacqua and Jelena Dokic added the finishing touch.

The pair made it a 4-1 victory with a win in the dead doubles rubber 7-5 6-4 over Belinda Bencic and Amra Sadikovic on the indoor clay court.

Earlier, Samantha Stosur’s second straight-sets victory in Fribourg over Swiss No.1 Stefanie Voegele gave the Australians a 2-1 lead after the first rubber on the final day’s play.

Australia will play one of the World Group first round losers in April for a berth in the elite eight-nation competition in 2013.
